Poetry Fishbowl Report for January 7, 2020

This month's theme was "short forms." I wrote from 1 PM to 5 AM, so about 14 hours allowing for lunch and supper breaks. I wrote 22 poems, and I finished everything. \o/ I am really thrilled with how well this went, as it left me plenty of time to work on the year-end material. I plan to revisit this theme next January.

Participation was pretty good with 22 comments on LiveJournal and another 48 on Dreamwidth. A total of 18 people sent prompts. There were no new prompters.
